The debt was soon repaid by Jacob Tonsonwho had contracted Johnson to publish Shakespeare, and this encouraged Johnson to finish his edition to repay the favour. When the year-old Boswell finally meets Johnson, who was then aged 53, Life catches fire.

His most highly regarded poem, The Vanity of Human Wisheswas written with such "extraordinary speed" that Boswell claimed Johnson "might have been perpetually a poet". He would. No one, of course, could speak ill of his friends but Johnson himself. Annotations address historical, literary, and linguistic uncertainties, and a The life of Samuel Johnson textual apparatus documents how Brack arrived at this definitive text of Hawkins's Life.

Although it was 10 years before Boswell found the courage to confess he was writing his Life, there were some clues to his ultimate intention. On 8 JuneJohnson published his Proposals for Printing, by Subscription, the Dramatick Works of William Shakespearewhich argued that previous editions of Shakespeare were edited incorrectly and needed to be corrected.

A man apparently without principle, Wilkes was a member both of parliament and the Hellfire Club, a demagogue and a rake. The Rambler seemed the best that occurred, and I took it. This series was shorter and lacked many features of The Rambler.

The "little story book", as Johnson described it, describes the life of Prince Rasselas and Nekayah, his sister, who are kept in a place called the Happy Valley in the land of Abyssinia.
